"Inside are the remains of Nurhachi, First Emperor of Manchu Dynasty."
Lao Che[src]

Nurhachi (also Nurhaci) was the first Emperor of the Manchu Dynasty in China, ruling from 1616 to his death in 1626.

Biography

Nurhachi reigned from 1616 to until death from battle wounds in 1626. His ashes were placed in a jade funerary urn.

Legacy

In 1935, Indiana Jones was hired to recover his remains by Lao Che. Lao's son, Kao Kan, tried to steal them from the archaeologist first, which resulted in a broken wrist, but Jones later delivered Nurhachi's ashes to Lao Che at Club Obi Wan in exchange for an elusive diamond.

Behind the scenes

The historical Nurhachi is credited with ordering the creation of a written script for the Manchu language.

Nurhachi's organization of the Manchu people, his attacks on China's Ming Dynasty and Korea's Joseon Dynasty, and his conquest of China's northeastern Liaodong province, laid the groundwork for the conquest of China by the Qing Dynasty.

The Greatest Adventures of Indiana Jones dates Nurhachi's birth in 1558.
